New York City rock band, Blonde Otter is comprised of vocalist, Michael Guariglia, lead guitarist, Dan Wines, rhythm guitarist, Brendan Glynn, bassist, Rob Falcone, and drummer, Matthew Falcone. The band formed in 2016 during their years at Fordham University in the Bronx. After being friends for years and having similar musical tastes, they decided to form a band.
What started off as playing covers at nearby college parties and bars quickly turned into writing original songs and playing across NYC, including packed out shows at NYC’s famous Mercury Lounge. The group combines power pop, new wave, and garage rock influences with a modern approach to create their contemporary classics. They released their debut EP titled “Hello, Bye Bye” in spring 2017 and plan to release a follow-up EP in spring 2018.
